Hammer of Truth - Marijuana No Longer the Key Gateway Drug

Hammer of Truth - Marijuana No Longer the Key Gateway Drug: "Not only might one argue that Viagra is frequently abused by people taking it for recreational use, but it also leads to more dangerous activities. The strength of the DEA argument against marijuana has always rested on the distortion fact that marijuana is a gateway drug. Viagra is much more of a gateway drug, as it is not only associated with the use of hard (no pun intended) drugs, but it also leads to such things as marital enhancement for those with erectile dysfunction and the restoration of healthy sex lives for our elderly. Like marijuana, it must be outlawed today before our society slips into further decay."


According to U. S. District Judge John L. Kane in: “The New Prohibition: Voices of Dissent Challenging the Drug War” edited by Sheriff Bill Masters, our so-called war on drugs began with the passage of the Harrison Narcotics Act of 1914.

Back then, all types of recreational and self-medicating drugs were legally available on grocery store shelves for pennies per dose, with no questions asked. Back then, about 1.3 percent of our adult population were addicted to drugs.

Back then, the term “illegal drugs” didn’t exist. Back then, the term “drug related crime” didn’t exist either. Neither did drug lords or even drug dealers as we know them today.

Today, after 90 years of fighting our so-called drug war, we still have about 1.3 percent of our adult population addicted to drugs.

And in the process, we have completely wasted more than a trillion dollars and become the most incarcerated nation in the history of human civilization.

If this is a bad drug why should people fight to legalize it.
